State Sen. Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction, will end the speculation Saturday when he is to announce whether he’ll run for governor.

Penry, the minority leader in the state Senate, has said he was considering a bid to challenge Democrat incumbent Bill Ritter but hasn’t tipped his hand on his decision.

Penry, his wife, Jamie, and their children will announce his decision at 9 a.m. Saturday in front of the old Mesa County courthouse.

If Penry chooses to run, he must first face off against another Republican and his former boss, six-time U.S. Rep. Scott McInnis, who last week filed papers making his own gubernatorial bid official.
